Thoughts on APEX Progressive Web Apps

There has been a good deal of buzz around using APEX for Progressive Web Apps (PWA) lately thanks to the excellent work and presentations by Vincent Morneau. You can and should read his Turning APEX into a PWA document. Here I want to share my thoughts on building PWAs with APEX; the possibilities, limits and […]

APEX IG Cookbook Update for 18.2

Last week I presented Interactive a Grid Deep Dive for APEX Office Hours where I demonstrated a new version of the IG Cookbook. The video and slides are now available. The presentation covered important aspects of the Interactive Grid architecture. As promised I’m making the latest IG Cookbook (release 4.0) for APEX 18.2 available for […]

APEX Media List Mega Menu

When I showed the Inline Popup Region to my coworker Shakeeb, he said he wanted to put a media list in it and use it as a navigation menu. And I said why not just use a menu. This was all theoretical at that point because as far as I know no one had done […]

APEX 18.1 New Region Features

Note this is about a future release of APEX and the final release may differ from what I describe. Last month I gave two talks at the NL.OUG APEX World conference.

APEX IG Cookbook for 5.1.4

Happy New Year. I wanted to get this IG Cookbook update out the same week that APEX version 5.1.4 was released and Early Adopter for 5.2 came out but a technical problem (described below) and the holidays slowed me down.

Visibility and Size Managed Components

For no particular reason other than I feel like writing about it, I’ll now describe some minor functionality that crept into the APEX 5.1.1 patch release.
